@Teams Feature Team - I see this is "Declined". /Please/ reconsider this request for adoption in the Product UX.
This is a standard feature to reduce distraction in your competitors products. For those of us coming from those products into Teams, this is a noteworthy departure, as previous comments here reflect.
please consider this submission as part of this request, https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32693563-1-allow-me-to-refer-to-group-members-with-their-f
The fact that Teams is drawing from the company-defined GAL and using the Display Name field (where I work the Corp IT team has elected to use the Lastname, Firstname methodology, which is awful UX within Teams) needs rethinking. If the Teams product can override this and always ensure "Firstname Lastname", it will provide a much more personalized (i.e., normal human) experience over "Lastname, Firstname".
Please provide an override to the Enterprise GAL configuration so that Teams always shows the users in Firstname Lastname orientation.
This item is still under review. I’ll keep following up with the feature team and sharing all your feedback.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
Slack will serve as an excellent guide for pretty much what everyone here is upvoting.
Unless I'm mistaken, /this/ submission is far-and-away the most "Voted" feature request for Teams in the uservoice (not to mentioned that there are a bunch of other submissions which basically echo this submission). Getting this implemented into the UX will be a monumental improvement!
Hi Forum Admin! Just checking in to see if you're able to share an update on this feature submission, and its place on the roadmap. Our group is migrating from Slack to Teams, and this is one aspect that would really smooth the transition for our users. Screen "real estate", especially on laptops and mobile devices, is at a premium so we're excited to know that improvements are in the works.
